A clash of bantamweight competitors has been promoted from the Facebook preliminaries of UFC on Fox 7 to the FX portion of the broadcast. The fight in question is a battle of TUF veterans that pits T.J. Dillashaw against Hugo Viana.
Dillashaw (7-1) stepped into the bout as a replacement for Francisco Rivera, the Team Alpha Male product has been on a tear inside the UFC, going undefeated since dropping the TUF 14 Final Bout to John Dodson. “The Viper” has since taken three-straight wins against Walel Watson, Vaughan Lee, and Issei Tamura.
Viana (7-0), a semifinalist on TUF: Brazil, rides back-to-back victories over John Teixeira and Reuben Duran at featherweight and bantamweight respectively.
